I am selling my 540i as I just picked up 2011 535xi

had this one for 8 years

Titanium Silver 540i Sport
manual transmission (short shifter, CDV delete, clutch stop)
upgraded to 2001 HELA HIDs
Upgraded (2001 look) rear lights
New Koni FSD shocks front and back
All new front suspension components
clean in an out.
235 thousand kms
two sets of wheels with new tires - winter 1 season and summer - half a season
looks and drives like new
VERY strong motor - was always stronger than other ones, kind of lucky.
I spent over 6 grand a couple of month ago to rebuild the motor, cooling system , and suspension - I thought I'd be driving it for another 3-4 years at least.
Compression (leak down test) in all cylinders is same as on new engine now.
The car is pretty much like new everywhere. Motor with all new parts, cooling fully replaced - pump, hoses, rad - the whole bit.

I overhauled it for myself to enjoy for years to come but my business picked up and I could afford a brand new one. Who seen my car, knows it is VERY well cared for.

you will have to be patient for the right buyer to come by
lots of work has been done and will benefit new owner for lots of miles to come.

starting price - 10000

but where else can you buy a like new e39?

car also has Mark DaSilva's chip. It should be installed this week. I paid for it long time ago but never got Mark to install it. It is being arranged now.

by the way - the miles are mostly highway, about 80%
the last 4 month I haven't driven much on highways - may be 30% of time ... the fuel economy is amazing really ... I average 10.8L/100km. I do nail it quite often though I never abuse the car. But still - fuel economy is quite surprising. It got much better after I did the engine work. I get 7.9 - 8.5L/100km when cruising on highway.

this car is a gem

The reason I came to this site was because I was looking at a 2000 540 as well. Unfortunately I lost my job and the dream of owning one passed.
Your car is extremely clean man! Good luck with the sale. Id grab this in a heartbeat if cash flow was better.

@#$% happens even to the best of us bud. hang in there. I had a dream of owning an e39 since 1996 when I first saw one. I got my 540 in 2003 ... took me 7 years :). after 7 more years I got me a new F10 535. takes time :(
For mine - I did not even post an autotrader ad yet. I already have plenty of interest. the car should be gone in no time.
thanks all

If anyone is looking for a great 540 this is one to consider. O.S. has not even listed all the work he has done in the last 4 months... maybe he should. It's pretty much got a new motor in there.
